Epiphone Deluxe Floor Model EHarp, ca. 1948

10-String, Electric Hawaiian Guitar, Solid maple body, Kluson pearl and steel tuning keys, original Octa-vision fingerboard and CRL 3-way switch, steel nut and Epiphone pickups, and steel-threaded legs.

The EHarp’s shape evolved over time as Alkire experimented with different designs.  Later models abandoned the traditional guitar shape, though the fret board remained essentially unchanged.
